Agreed with peraspera. The adjective "formal" rather than the adverb "formally" will be meaningful. But in the end we have to choose only among the answer choices...



"formally" is an adverb that modifies the verbs sanctioned and prohibited. This is the correct word to use IMO


It would be correct to choose "formally" if the verb "sanctioned" was not underlined in the question stem.
As you can see, it is underlined, and choice C does not have this verb, therefore "formally" does not fit.

I'm 99.99% certain the poster made a typo somewhere, or underlined what he should not have (like the word "sanctioned", for example). 8-) All IMO, of course.


I think it would be a fair assumption that "sanctioned" was underlined by mistake (Option A does not have "sanctioned").

C


D distorts meaning and puts emphasis on formally [not a sanctioned or prohibited means of reaching a verdict] where C says it is not a formally sanctioned.

Why E wrong? I think sanctioned and prohibited here play a role of adj. The word "means" is plural noun. Why we need "a" here

Good one;

Here there is clear cut explanation in the previous post about the answer choices. But i feel need explanation about why not D or Why not C ? The plot of the passage is court of law. In making the decision the juror needs to comply according to mentioned procedures in law. Which means that if the a procedure is documented in the law. D changes the meaning of the sentence as the procedure is mentioned as 'NOT SANCTIONED'. Is it possible? So the answer is C- which clear cut identifies the verb agreement error and meaning.

Hope that helps

C. gut instinct, which is not a formally sanctioned or prohibited means of reaching a verdict.

a formally sanctioned or prohibited means (SUBJECT SINGULAR) goes well with verb IS

formally (adverb) -- sanctioned or prohibited (both adjective) -- means (noun)

sanctioned or prohibited means (adjective + noun )

formally (adverb) is modifying adjectives sanctioned or prohibited.

Therefore, C is grammatically correct.
